LINCOLN, Neb.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nebraska Book Holdings, Inc. (NBC) and its Board of Directors declared a
1-for-10,000 reverse stock split of the company’s common stock, par
value $0.001 per share, anticipated to take effect December 19, 2018.
The reverse stock split will not alter any stockholder’s percentage
ownership interest in NBC, unless a fractional share would result. Any
fractional shares of common stock will be paid in cash, based on an
independent valuation obtained by NBC of $78.09 per post-split share.
The 1-for-10,000 reverse stock split will reduce the number of
outstanding shares of the company’s common stock from approximately 7.9
billion shares to approximately 790,000 shares. As a result of the
reverse stock split, the number of authorized shares of common stock
under the company’s certificate of incorporation will be reduced to one
million shares, and the number of authorized shares of preferred stock
will be reduced to 100,000 shares. The par value of the common stock
will remain unchanged at $0.001 per share.
To enact the reverse stock split, NBC will file an amendment to its
certificate of incorporation reflecting the approved split ratio and the
reduction in number of authorized shares. The reverse stock split may be
abandoned at the Board’s discretion prior to effectiveness. The new
CUSIP number for NBC’s common stock following the reverse stock split
will be 63957L302. The primary purpose of the reverse stock split is to
reduce NBC’s annual franchise tax payable to the State of Delaware.
Outstanding shares of NBC common stock are held in book entry form.
Stockholders will not be required to take action to adjust their
stockholdings to reflect the reverse stock split. Beneficial holders are
encouraged to contact their bank, broker or custodian with questions.
